The Achieving Independence Center (AIC) provides resources, classes, employment, and housing services to youth who are preparing to age out of the system.
Transitioning to adulthood can be overwhelming, especially for youth in foster care. The AIC is a safe and communal space for teens and young adults, ages 18-23, who are currently in foster care or have been in Philadelphia foster care.
Youth are matched with an AIC coach. They provide personalized help for youth, including:
- Employment/career planning
- Housing referrals
- Enroll in college/vocational school
- Complete high school/GED
- Improve computer literacy
- Achieve permanency
- Expand their personal development
